Graham, a key ally of the president's, said he spoke with Barr on Sunday morning, as well as Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr, a North Carolina Republican. He said they urged him to "take very cautiously" information from Ukraine against Republicans and Democrats.

"If Rudy Giuliani has any information coming out of the Ukraine, he needs to turn it over to the Department of Justice because it could be Russian propaganda," Graham said, making a stern plea for Giuliani and all U.S. politicians to be wary of that information because it "may be backed by Russian misinformation."

Lindsey Graham Implicates William Barr in Massive Scandal, on Live Television

  Lindsey Graham Implicates William Barr in Massive Scandal, on Live Television Barr has “created a process” to let Trump’s private lawyer channel dirt to the DOJ?Yesterday, Senator Lindsey Graham appeared on Face the Nation and blurted out an apparent confession of what, if true, would be a scandal of Nixonian proportions. Graham reported he had spoken with Attorney General William Barr that morning. “The Department of Justice is receiving information coming out of the Ukraine from Rudy,” he reported, explaining that Barr “told me that they’ve created a process that Rudy could give information and they would see if it’s verified.

Trump's lawyer, Rudy Giuliani , said on CNN that there's no evidence the FBI or Justice 'How low has President Obama gone to tapp [sic] my phones during the very sacred election process . Giuliani insisted Trump could be on the right track anyway. 'He may turn out to be closer to the truth

Rudolph W. Giuliani , the former New York City mayor and longtime Trump loyalist, will be part of a legal stable as the president faces the Russia investigation. Three people close to the former mayor said that Greenberg Traurig lawyers were distressed that Mr. Giuliani was taking on the new role.

When pressed on whether Giuliani is being "played" by the Russians, the South Carolina senator said he didn't know.

"I'm telling Rudy, you think you've got the goods? Don't give it to me, because what do we know? We know the Russian disinformation campaign was used against President Trump. They hacked into the DNC system, not the Ukrainians, and they're on the ground all over the world trying to affect democracy," Graham said.

Giuliani traveled to Ukraine late last year in the midst of House Democrats' impeachment inquiry against Mr. Trump, which centered around his dealings with the country and efforts to pressure Ukraine's new president, Volodymyr Zelensky, to publicly announce an investigation into former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden.

During his trip, Giuliani met with former Ukrainian prosecutors who claimed to have knowledge of unsubstantiated wrongdoing by Biden and others, and said in December he planned to draft a report of his findings for congressional Republicans and the attorney general.

Barr confirms DOJ reviewing Ukraine information from Giuliani, others

  Barr confirms DOJ reviewing Ukraine information from Giuliani, others Attorney General Bill Barr confirmed Monday that the Justice Department is reviewing information about Ukraine coming to the department from President Trump's personal attorney Rudy Giuliani and others through an “intake process" to gauge its credibility.“The Justice Department has the obligation to have an open door to anybody who wishes to provide us information that they think is relevant,” Barr told reporters. “But as I did say to Senator [Lindsey] Graham ... we have to be very careful …with respect to any information coming from the Ukraine.

“ Biden — he calls them and says , ‘Don’t you dare persecute, if you don’t fire this prosecutor’ He even says Giuliani mentioned the Ukrainian company that employed Hunter Biden “Some may want me to say things to protect the president at all costs; some may want me to provide damning facts to

"They should investigate the Bidens ," he said , speaking to reporters on the lawn of the White House. Mr Li founded a private equity fund shortly after the trip, and Hunter was on the board, although a spokesman for the younger Mr Biden told NBC News they did not discuss any business

But Graham said any information should be vetted and verified by the intelligence community.

"Rudy Giuliani is a well-known man. He's a crime fighter. He's loyal to the president. He's a good lawyer," Graham said. "But what I'm trying to say to the president and anybody else is, the Russians are still up to it. Deterrence is not working."

The South Carolina senator, who retired from the Air Force in 2015 after 33 years, also defended the ousting of Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman from the National Security Council (NSC) and Gordon Sondland from his position as U.S. ambassador to the European Union. Both Sondland and Vindman testified publicly before the House in the impeachment inquiry.

"I think his reassignment was justified. I don't think he could be effective at the NSC," Graham said of Vindman. "As much as I support our military people telling the truth when asked — it's important they do — what have I learned in the last two years? CIA agents, Department of State, Department of Justice lawyers, FBI agents have a political agenda and they acted on it."

Graham said Sondland, meanwhile, was a political appointee who serves at the pleasure of the president.
